Men and women in the Bronze Age
Some of the most famous people from Denmark’s prehistoric period come from the Bronze Age. They lie in oak coffins, dressed in their clothes and with their grave goods, just as they were buried in mounds more than 3000 years ago. As a result of the unusually good conditions of preservation we can get a fairly good picture of how the men and women of the Bronze Age looked, how they were dressed and which objects they used in daily life. In the National Museum’s exhibition you can meet seven of these people - the women from Egtved, Skrydstrup and Borum Eshøj and the men from Muldbjerg, Trindhøj and Borum Eshøj.
